I’m totally not doing the something old, something borrowed something blue. It’s just not my thing…..We’re not traditional type people….

My parents raised me to be pretty superstitious, I’m going to do whatever possible to create more luck especially for the well being of my marriage, so I’ll probably do this.  ^_^

But hey that’s just me.  *nods*

It’s so easy to do… I think it would just be natural to have all those elements at the wedding.  I wouldn’t purposely omit them, nor would I go out of my way to plan them all out, lol.

If the O,N,B,B items had not basically appeared before me, I probably would have forgotten about them all together!

My grandmother gave me her wedding veil to wear (OLD)

Everything else I wore that day was (NEW)

My MOH offered to let me borrow her gorgeous diamond earrings (BORROWED)

My wonderful DH bought me a London Blue Topaz ring to wear as my (SOMETHING BLUE)

I wouldn’t stress about it.  Usually these things just fall into place.  On that day, I also had an old/borrowed bag made from my Mom’s wedding dress, a blue bag that we kept the rings in and tons of other new stuff including an embroidered handerchief my dad had made for me.  You might be surprised how things come together…

Nope. Not on purpose, anyway – if it falls together accidentally it can’t be helped.

I’m doing it simply because I think it is a fun tradition. And my "old" piece is an heirloom crystal necklace from my late grandmother.

It is also fun when people ask me what items I have to fulfill the tradition. It’s a fun and unique wedding-related conversation I’d much rather have opposed to the "are you freaking out yet/going to go through with it" off the wall questions and conversations.

Something Borrowed: Pretty sure that my jewelry will be borrowed!

Something New: not sure

Something Old: not sure

Something Blue: My fsil just told me last night she wants to get me my something blue. So I’m really excited! I love presents. 

I’m not going to kill myself over it or anything, I’m going to just see if I happen to get these items … if I don’t get them all I won’t worry.

I just think it’s fun, I’m doing it more for fun than a tradition I must follow.

I was going to, but then I forgot on the day of the wedding *shrugs* it gets crazy that day lol I did have new stuff obviously (dress, shoes, jewelry, veil, etc), I had a bit of blue on my garter, as well as a ring my mom gave me a few years ago, which I also count as my something old. Nothing borrowed though. I’m not too worried about it. My husband is Chinese and apparently in Chinese culture, their superstion is to wear only new stuff.

Hmm, I don’t know yet! I have something borrowed, my mom’s earrings. Something old could be the necklace FI gave me for Christmas last year, is that old enough? New will be my dress & shoes, so I would have to find something blue! I wasn’t planning on wearing a garter… ideas?
